It was a creative workshop, initiated by Champak (a children’s magazine). In this workshop, I developed a new skills in photography. I had prior knowledge about photography that we learnt during art classes at school(Visual Arts), while designing the My aim for attending the workshop was to improve my knowledge of using a camera and developing better pictures as this is my field of interest
We were shown a presentation which was informative, yet not as interesting; as there were other students as well and a lot of time was taken in explaining things I already knew; also because each student had a different kind and model of camera, there were a lot of hazards in learning proper techniques. The most interesting thing in the presentation were a few pictures that formed illusions which gave a lot of interesting ideas for my art works also increased my understanding of photography and the art of illusion
For this task, we had to work on our photography skills individually , but it was bit insipid because we were a lot of students and hence it became difficult to clear our doubts and develop new skills but eventually we all collaborated with each other and shared our knowledge with each other which helped us learn better . I learnt a lot of new photography skills which i was unaware about previously. I learnt how to play with aperture and shutter speed and also about ISO. Over all it was a fun workshop but could have been organized better
I conducted an orientation session with students from our school who are going to be participating in a Model United Nations conference. As they were mostly first time delegates, I believe I helped them by imparting the knowledge I have gained by having participated in various Model United Nations Conferences.
Helping my juniors made me feel very good about myself, because the purpose of Model UN’s is to help the world, and helping the world begins at home. All the students seemed very eager to listen to all that I had to say, and this helped me feel confident in my speaking skills.
During the course of this session, I was able to identify the skills I had learnt in MUNs and I tried my best to help the junior students learn these skills too. I also talked to them about how the typical MUN schedule works and gave them tips about research and preparation, which I believe will help them make the most out of their MUN experience.
Even students who I thought would not be interested in an activity as challenging as MUN conferences seemed to be enthusiastic to start researching for and participating in them, which led me to change the perspective with which I saw many of my juniors.
In the future, I hope to conduct more sessions like this one, so that I am able to raise awareness about global issues, leadership skills and public speaking in my school.
I had gone to millennium school Surat , for my athletic taluka level competition where I participated in event of 3km fast walking. A lot of efforts were put into the event before the final day. I improved on my stamina , fast walking skills and also improved my timing to complete the race. One the final day I got selected for the District competition so yes mission accomplished ! However it wasn’t the first time that I participated in athletics, but it was the first time that I participated in Under 19 category. Due to which I had other people with whom I had to compete with. Usually it’s just 1 person that I need to compete with which makes victory easy, but this time I had to compete with 3 other girls and all of them were good.
The challenges that I faced were to take out time from academics and work on my throwing skills, because I did not pay more attention to sports I couldn’t do well. During the entire process I tried to manage my time and tried to improve my skills which really helped.
Through this activity I learnt that I should not be overconfident in whatever I do because that might not always lead me to victory. Also, I thought I that I required more practice because my performance wasn’t exactly my best. To improve my performance I used to come early to school before the event which did help to a certain extent but could have been improved, by coming early I showed commitment by learning new techniques which helped me sharpen my skills
Moreover i also undertook service activity by photographing the event and also measuring distance of the jump for long jump
